i love....


i love my kids
and
i really love that my kids love each other


i love that they both inherited the ability to laugh at themselves
{a guarantee that they belong to me}


i love that she has a little brother and that he has a big sister
{secretly i kind of wish she had a sister, too and that he had a brother}


i love that they are both patient 
to a fault
{a guarantee that they belong to their father as they didn't get a lick of that from me}
*
for anyone worrying, it's just a bb gun and their target was a water bottle
{sooc}

  2. Your children really are sweet, and your daughter is beautiful. My two are a lot like your two, beth! My son has a big sister and I secretly wanted four children. Michelle and Andrew have always gotten along and have always really loved eachother. Thank goodness!
